Are the rules for reposting another persons posts still the same?
As I recall a poster could repost another posters post in it's entirety on the forum in which it's posted along with the link.
A post in another forum from another author could be reposted in a diferent forum provided it was treated just like an article off the internet...paraphrase or a short quote and then the link...
This is from TOS
You maintain a copyright on any copyrighted original material you post, to the extent allowed by law. The reposting of a message on a different forum on Delphi Forums without permission of the author is prohibited, except that official Delphi Forums staff announcements posted in support forums may be reposted in other forums.
So harassing or not, if I were the author I'd complain. Get permission and it's no problem.
This is from TOS as well:
>>That's essentially correct as far as copyright rules are concerned. But we may also consider whether the purpose of the quote was to ridicule or demean the author. If that is the purpose, don't do it!<<
Like I told Walt, it's a shadowy area has basically said this same thing years ago when I brought this up. I was just seeing if it was still the rule. Typically I'll just paraphrase the post and provide a link to avoid hassles, However I've had mods tell me even that was a TOS violation...just wanted a little clarification.
BTW...wasn't there a forum to see who the oldest poster on Delphi is? I know it's not me by a longshot, I posted to someone here who was from 1984 I think
